Google Summer of Code 2014

Google Summer of Code 2014

Hey all,

We talked in our February Google Hangout about trying again this year to
apply for Shoes as an organization to participate in Google Summer of Code.
The deadline is this Friday, February 14 so I thought I'd get a
conversation started about project ideas and applying.

I've started the application process and copied some of the wiki page of
last year's idea list over here:
https://github.com/shoes/shoes4/wiki/GSOC-2014-idea-list

I found this thread in our archives about the feedback from last year for
our application:
http://librelist.com/browser//shoes/2013/4/28/fwd-feedback-for-shoes/

I'd appreciate any suggestions or help to get our application in on time.
Last year our idea list had the following suggestions:
https://github.com/shoes/shoes4/wiki/GSOC-2013-idea-list

Thanks!

Faraaz

I intend to spend a lot of time on three projects in the coming months. My
idea for something to add to the GSOC application is in item 3 (I know this
is a little verbose, but it's just my style (:

1) EQBuddy - a project I built entirely in Shoes3 and am getting over to
Shoes4. I'll have it on github in a month or so.

2) Shoes4 - EQBuddy is constantly helping me find bugs in Shoes4. Whenever
I find one, I will stop working on EQBuddy and turn all of my attention to
Shoes4 until I've fixed the bug. I'm still a little lost on basic ideas in
both Ruby and Shoes. I've never so much as taken an "intro to programming"
class but I've probably written more than 100 hours of code and thousands
of lines on the EQBuddy project so I have more intuition than understanding
when it comes to Ruby and Shoes.

3) Shoes4+Android through Ruboto. I think this project will really help me
understand how Shoes4 is implementing SWT (And thus help me be more useful
in getting Shoes4 to alpha). The idea is to build a Ruboto backend and then
get furoshiki to make .apk's. My only goal right now is to implement bare
bones stuff like flow, stack, button, and image. Once I've got that done,
my focus will be more centered on (and probably more productive in) Shoes4.


Hope that helps,

KC

Great ideas. I particularly like the one about teaching furoshiki to 
create .apk’s.

Hey y'all for kicking this off... looking at the timeline I'm scared 
though if we'll get it in in time.

First we'd need mentors - are there **people up for mentoring**? 
Because without mentoring we can't get a spot either way...

Cheers,
Tobi

Hm yeah, unfortunately looks like it's too close to the deadline, and we
don't have any people yet that are available to mentor this Summer. I'd be
happy to be a mentor, but we'd need multiple potential mentors for backup
to make our application look robust.
